Richard MacManus writes about one of his frustrations with Digg - poorly created links that don’t give do a story justice. Once a particular link is added to Digg, there is no way for the submitter or anyone else to edit and improve it.

Sometimes this is done negligently or in a desire to post first; sometimes it is done maliciously to effectively block a story on Digg. Either way, it is an increasingly annoying problem for Digg users, and one that should be addressed. Too often, Digg’s data is crap.

Richard suggests giving some or all users the ability to edit links. He says he’s calling for editors, but not to pick stories. Rather, just to clean up existing stories to make them more accurate.
